The idea is that for sea kayaking you need to be able to alter your protection to the weather, so if a nice day you open up the collar and roll away the hood, then if the weather worsens you can seal yourself right up.If anything goes wrong yo are nicely sealed up in your drysuit. What is different about the Gul Juniper , the zip is around the middle and the two halves can be seperated. So you can wear the cag on its own. The zip around the middle also means you don’t need a friend to do it up, plus bonus for me is the sizing is bigger around than on the cags, so I can put the medium juniper drysuit on easily at 34 waist where the medium juniper cag is firm. I am 5ft 7 and there is still plenty height in the medium , Gul suggest up to 5ft 11 for medium. You get fabric feet , a comfort zip, really good breathable fabric, we normally stock the blue but we can order the orange , just phone us so we can check Gul’s stock.
